  • How Do You Get Lean Its a Mind Game

    How do you get lean is a situation a lot of people struggle with, there is so much advice out there its

    sometimes hard to know where to start, this is in contrast though, because technically its simple to

    get lean, but the fortune is in the follow through, because this is where most people fall down, if the

    process was followed by a robot then it would be done simply case closed, with us though the

    process can fall down inside your mind

    So you want to know how do you get lean. Well its simple really, you need to lose your body fat and

    build some muscle. You lose body fat by sorting out your diet first and foremost, this is 85% of the

    result, dont let anyone tell you should be doing cardio this is really a waste of time for most cases

    especially if the diet is not sorted, your diet needs to be basic wholefoods mainly meat, vegetables,

    some fruit, nuts and beans. You then need to be doing heavy weight training including the four

    foundation exercises everyone should be doing, squats, deadlifts, bench presses and pull-ups, if you

    are doing 20 reps of flyes for the burn then doing endless ab exercises then you are going nowhere

    fast. This approach seems to prevail somehow because I guess its easy and so easy to sell gym

    memberships for, fancy a gym ad saying come here and train with us, after the squats you wont be

    able to walk properly this could scare most people of, but it is whats required and not as daunting

    as it sounds.

    However the real crux to how do you get lean is in your head, the process is simple as described

    above, and where it comes apart is in your head. You really need to know why you want it and

    decide (the power is in making this decision, draw a line in the sand and step over it and know

    theres no going back) that you are going to achieve your leaner self and then follow through and do

    what it takes consistently, if you havent decided and are just going through the motions for the

    sake of it, combined with doing exercises that wont deliver results (endless cardio pumping, latest

    celebrity workout, only isolation exercises to target the muscles and burn or some variation of these)

    then you are on the road to nowhere and could easily come off, especially when progress is slow and

    you lose motivation thinking you are spinning your wheels ( which to be fair is understandable ). But

    now you are ahead of the game, you know how do you get lean is simple technically with a difficult

    mind game, dont let that discourage you, use it to empower you, to decide and test the mettle of

    your character, knowing what to expect is half the battle, use knowing that its a difficult mind game

    to empower you, from the moment you truly decide to step over the line, to each time you stick to

    the diet, to when you do a set of heavy squats or deadlifts (and know what not being able to walk

    properly means) know that you are moving forward and its only a matter of time before your lean

    self emerges.

    So in conclusion you came here wanting to know how do you get lean, the answer is probably not

    what you were expecting is it? Dont let the endless information out there give you the illusion that

    its a complex process, its not, its simple, eat basic whole foods, (but minimise any grains, avoid if

    you can, but thats a subject for another day) and train heavy with intensity. Decide in your mind

    that you are not going back and are going to stick it out and let your willpower and confidence grow

    on the journey.
